Clinician participants and DOH and MOH leaders were very pleased and highly complimentary of the quality of teaching, materials presented and equipment donated.  This was a very small group consisting of both clinicians and DOH and MOH officials.  The goal of this pilot project was not only to prepare a small core group of national trainers for a scale up of HBB and NRP countrywide in Iraq but also to discuss with the partners the components of a successful national resuscitation training effort.  In addition, high priority was discussing a long term partnership - LDSC, UNICEF, MOH, NMDC.  This was accomplished.

The request was made in advance for expanded breastfeeding training due to the low percentage of mothers who breastfeed successfully in Kurdistan Region. Jo Ann Abegglen integrated much additional breastfeeding information, video clips, demonstrations into ECSB.  This was excellent and very well received.

Develop a cadre of local trainers and have the Zambians do the training (with our funding if needed).  At least that would save the transportation costs from the US.  Possibly have only one or two from LDS Charities.

Course conducted at  E&J Medical/Surgical Hospital in Ganta, Liberia. In one week, a single HBB Master Trainer taught 10 new master trainers, then mentored them as they taught an additional 52 participants. Each training started with HBB video from Global Health Media. 4 manikin training stations were used and left for ongoing practice. Most of staff, and 34 student nurses were trained.

Having sufficient equipment for the course can significantly improve the hands on learning approach that is needed.
Its important to establish clear number of MT, to facilitator, to provider that the in country partner wants so as to properly prepare for the course.

Most of the local facilitators were experienced and have gained a lot of confidence over the 2+ years we have been working with them. Teaching assignments were given for the larger groups, for which they did fairly good jobs. In retrospect, a bit more guidance to the local facilitators by the LDSC instructors before and during the instruction may have strengthened the overall quality of the training.  Some of the local facilitators spent more time lecturing than necessary taking away practice time from the tables.

The translated material is Edition 1, which made it challenging to teach Edition 2, because the students had read the material in advance, and would often reference it. We are working with parter organization to have Edition 2 translated into Arabic

Items to note: Make video standard part of HBB course.

Ideas for improvement: Modified second day training to fit our objective of pre-service training inside medical, nursing and midwifery schools.

Appropriateness of participants and how you handled this: Unique course meant to teach midwife, NICU nurse and pediatrician trainers HBB2 and put this training into all school’s curriculum.

Items to note: The spreadsheet for ECEB and ECSB are the same but the number of questions on the exam for each course is different- 30 for ECSB and 28 for ECEB – so we made kind of a hybrid type 30 question test and could not enter that onto the ECEB spreadsheet. I will send both spreadsheets. We understand that if we teach a combined course then we report it as 2 courses but there was not a ECSB spreadsheet. It is challenging to find material in Spanish for HBB 2.0 and the Essential Care courses.

Ideas for improvement: Need to decide when combing these courses (Essential Care) how to do the exam and the spreadsheet.

Appropriateness of participants and how you handled this: The participants were by and large great. They were sometimes on their phones a lot. Punctuality was also a problem, but we managed.

We organized the TOT courses, as well as the Participant courses, based on the partner assertion that the TOT people had been previously trained in all courses.  This proved not to be completely accurate.  Our TOT courses were designed to be only refresh trainings.  We would have allowed an additional day for each of the TOT courses had we known that so many of the TOT people had not been trained previously.  That said, both trainers and participants were enthusiastic and after the initial days of TOT, they came prepared to teach the following days.

Course was held in Cleveland, OH as part of a larger conference "Management of Humanitarian Emergencies." Learners included physicians from Cuba, Puerto Rico, and South Africa. The Cuban physicians did not believe HBB had ever been taught in their country. When we discussed the importance of documenting a birth record, they also stated that it is not required to document births of infants weighing less than 1500 grams, so that the birth rate and infant mortality rates recorded in-country are not accurate.
